The Fitbit Force is an activity tracker that monitors your steps, distance traveled, calories burned, and active minutes. It also has a sleep monitoring feature to track how long you sleep and the quality of your rest when you’re asleep. The Force measures physical activity using 3 tracking technologies: an altimeter, which detects changes in elevation; an accelerometer, which senses motion; and a galvanic skin response sensor (also called GSR), which senses sweat on your skin.
The Force comes with a wireless dongle that plugs into a USB port on your laptop or desktop computer (PC or Mac). This dongle establishes a wireless connection between the Force and your computer — all you have to do comes within 20 feet of the computer and the Force will start syncing data automatically.
Getting the most out of your Fitbit activity tracker requires some understanding of how to use it. That’s where having the owner’s manual comes in handy. With proper usage, there is less risk of damage, and you’ll learn how to get the most out of it.
Please be sure to read and save the entire manual before setting up or using your Fitbit Force. Misuse may damage the unit and/or cause harm or serious injury. Download the manual and save it for future reference.
